Thanks Stan,

I'll try going back to the sample scenes. I was under the impression that the Lodge package was updated to work with version 4 but since the RSS, CallerID, DVDlobby, Drink finder all have issues, I guess that is not the case.

Margaret did an update of the Lodge scenes so it seems like we are closer to getting out of beta stage.
The rss feeds are now working. Caller ID is closer. It works if you leave the home screen and come back, it just doesn't update automatically if you are sitting on the home screen.
Still no luck with drink finder but Margaret says hers is working so I will keep playing around with that.

Haven't had the time to get back to DVD lobby and may just skip it like I ended up doing in the past version.

Why don't you set up LogMeIn and let me look at it? I have those scenes running here and they work fine.

In case this helps anyone, here is the response from Margaret about the Caller ID not updating on the home page:


If you want to see the latest caller then you should use the following server variables on the home page.

{{callerid_lastcall_name}}
{{callerid_lastcall_date}}
{{callerid_lastcall_time}}
{{callerid_lastcall_image}}

This works with the exception of the image. I am storing the image in C:\Program Files\Cinemar\MLServer\Images\CallerID as 999-999-9999.jpg (999 being actual number) and I am still seeing Not Available image.

My play movie command was wrong in DVDLobby. I corrected that and can now select a movie play location.
I am now getting a new error in content manager when I try to save something (I attempted to change the parental code and save it)

Error at WriteSetting at line #405 - Object reference not set to an instance of an object. I can click OK all day long but the error keeps popping up intil I crash the app.

Edit - I just launched content manager - opened movie settings - and tried to save without making any changes and I got the above error forcin gme to pull up task manager.

Line #405 tells me that you are not getting connected to or got disconnected from SQL Server. Is it repeatable?
